Hi, this is Sheela Shenoy here. I've had to take over the controls from Naren on account of his showing strong signs of having gone nuts.
Now, this is not in itself alarming. Goofiness comes to Naren naturally. A bit like golf to Tiger Woods, or Kung Fu to all 1.3 billion Chinese people. But this time, I wondered if it wasn't a bit over the usual form.
It began with the Mint newspaper. It carried an article (I've added a screen capture thing above, because I just figured out how it is done. Cool!) which said that the acreage under food was shrinking. I showed it to Naren, just as a sign of the times.
Me: Saw this article?
Naren: (Peering through the wrong part of his bifocals) Um... The print is a bit hazy
Me: Naren, the lower half. You are supposed to peer through the lower half when you want to read something. The upper half is for distances.
Naren: Oh yes, yes. When am I ever going to get used to this.... Oh, Acreage under Food Shrinks....
Me: (waiting for him to say something)
Naren: What in the world is a Food Shrink? And why would someone put acreage under them?
So you see, all is not well in our little homestead, brain cell wise.
